Put your hand down. You did not have Harvard.

The first full day of the NCAA Tournament presented us with fun and stun. Harvard bounced overrated New Mexico and the Pac-12 went 3-0, resulting in nightlong criticism of the selection committee for it’s odd seeding of the Pac-12 teams.

Oregon smacked Oklahoma State 68-55, despite some wardrobe malfunctions. Cal held off UNLV 64-61 after trying to choke away the lead late by going 4-for-12 from the free-throw line down the stretch. Arizona had an easy time with Belmont in an 81-64 win.

Nate Wolters vs. Trey Burke? Well, that turned out to be a dud. They were a combined 5-for-27 in Michigan’s 71-56 win over South Dakota State.

Five teams that Washington played this year — Colorado State, Saint Louis, Cal, Arizona and Oregon — all won second-round games Thursday. Washington was 2-6 against the group.

Gonzaga had all sorts of trouble with 16-seed Southern. Our Dave Boling was on the scene.

Colorado State skull-thumped Missouri on the boards 42-14. The Rams will play Louisville in the next round. That should be interesting.

But, that will have to wait until Saturday. On to Friday.

Three things to watch today:

1. Marshall “Mathers” Henderson. Maniacal Mississippi shooting guard Marshall Henderson will be at it this morning against Wisconsin. The schemes of head coach Bo Ryan versus Henderson’s chucker mentality will be a good matchup.

2. I’m interested in Temple vs. NC State. The Wolfpack runs the high-post offense. Temple is annually a tough team thanks to the legacy John Chaney built there. Should be tight.

3. Pac-12 flavor. Colorado takes on Illinois and UCLA faces Minnesota. Both teams are in Austin.
